How do I access the Commvault CommCell Console?

The console is available as a java application at  Log in with "AD\duckid" and with as your server.

What predefined schedule policies are available?

Schedule policies define how often, when, and what type of backup jobs are run.  In order to keep management of these schedules manageable we ask that backup jobs conform to these predefined schedules when possible.  If an application needs special considerations please mention it when requesting the change.

The "Weekly:F:19_Daily:I:19" policy makes most efficient use of our backup systems and available backup window. This should be used as the default when possible.
